the plane will not take off becuase of the friction that the wheels create.....

this topic sucks.

i anylized it at work with my staff and all the engineers, and we decided that YES it will take off

heh, I know this topic sucks, it originated at the Honda Forums, anyways :P (no disrespekt)
The answer, of course, is yes, as proved by Toasty and a few others. I'm surprised Wren didn't get it.

The scenario is misleading. The solution is simple.

It'* the air moving over the wing that creates lift. Not ground speed.

Solution is simple, indeed. Planes fly because the shape of the wing makes air travel over one side longer than the other, basically. This effect creates more pressure below than above, thereby lifting the plane. If the plane is not moving relative to the air around it, it will be unable to create that effect.

Sorry if what I've said has already been said, I didn't read all the replies.
My brother is studying aero-engineering.

I got it this time (in this topic farther up.....second post, first reply), and in the original form it was posted months ago.

I worked in Aviation for 4 years. CH53E Super Stallions and RF-4B Phantoms.
